A growing number of people, families, and businesses are turning to self-storage as a solution when they need extra space or a safe place to keep their belongings. When considering self-storage options, though, it is normal to have questions and worries. 

In this blog, we hope to answer the most frequently asked questions about self-storage while highlighting the advantages, resolving common issues, and offering clear solutions.

What are the benefits of using self-storage?

There are many advantages to self-storage. In order to make a home, apartment, or office more organized and comfortable, it first needs extra space for decluttering. Second, self-storage provides a safe location for storing priceless or sentimental items, guarding them against potential damage or theft. Last but not least, it provides flexibility, allowing you to access your stored items whenever you need to, unlike traditional storage options.

What items can I store in a self-storage unit?

A self-storage unit can accommodate a wide variety of items. Self-storage facilities can house a variety of items, including seasonal clothing, sporting goods, furniture, paperwork, and even vehicles. But it is crucial to take into account any limitations or instructions given by the storage facility, particularly when it comes to dangerous goods or perishables.

How do I choose the right size storage unit?

The size of the storage unit you choose will depend on the items you intend to store. At YourWay Storage, we offer a range of sizes, from small 5x5 units to large 10x20 units. To determine the needed space, think about taking an inventory of your possessions. Depending on your unique requirements, our helpful staff can also help you choose the right size.

Are the units secure?

Yes, security is a top priority for self-storage facilities. For instance, YourWay Storage provides amenities like gated entry, round-the-clock camera monitoring, and on-site management. These precautions guarantee that the things you store are well-protected. To further increase the security of your storage unit, it is always advisable to spend money on a reliable lock.

How often can I access my storage unit?

The storage unit you rent from YourWay Storage can be accessed easily. Our gate is open every day from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., so you can retrieve or store items whenever it is convenient for you. However, it is crucial to confirm the exact access hours of the storage facility you select because they may change.

Can I rent a storage unit for a short period of time?

Absolutely! Whether you require long-term or temporary storage options, self-storage gives you flexibility. A short-term storage unit rental is a great choice if you are moving, downsizing temporarily, or are in between homes. YourWay Storage offers flexible rental terms to accommodate your specific needs.

How can I prevent damage to my belongings when they are in storage?

Proper organization and packing are essential for protecting your possessions. When transporting and storing items, use sturdy boxes, packing supplies, and furniture covers to keep them free of dust and potential damage. For delicate or sensitive items that might be impacted by changes in temperature or humidity, you should also think about using climate-controlled storage units.
